    NFL Concussion Controversy Continues

    By: Seeger Weiss LLP on December 13, 2012

    Football fans across the nation are weighing in on the National Football League‘s medical practices since Colt McCoy of the Cleveland Browns was permitted to continue playing after enduring a helmet-on-helmet hit last week.

    Football fans across the nation are weighing in on the National Football League‘s medical practices since Colt McCoy of the Cleveland Browns was permitted to continue playing after enduring a helmet-on-helmet hit last week. McCoy was back in last Thursday’s game a mere two plays after colliding with linebacker James Harrison of the Pittsburgh Steelers; and by the end of the fourth quarter, McCoy was experiencing classic concussion symptoms, including memory problems and sensitivity to light. It has since been revealed that the medical staff of the Cleveland Browns did not conduct a concussion test immediately following the tackle.
    This controversial story comes just a few days after Seeger Weiss LLP filed a lawsuit on behalf of 11 former NFL players who say they were given Toradol, a drug that minimized the warning signs of concussions. Many of these players continue to experience symptoms ranging from depression to frequent headaches. If you have been harmed by Toradol or another drug, our experienced drug injury and personal injury lawyers might be able to help you seek retribution. Our attorneys practice in a number of states across the country, and Seeger Weiss LLP was recently named to the top tier of New York City Mass Tort and Class Action firms by U.S. News and World Report.
